“The artist is the opposite of the politically minded individual, the opposite of the reformer, the opposite of the idealist. The artist does not tinker with the universe, he recreates it out of his own experience and understanding of life.”
We all know, too well, the bad rap that video games and those who play them receive from the media and a few outspoken individuals.
But do you know the real face of gaming? Video games aren’t just for kids. There is much research out there showing the educational and life skills training value of video games.
Did you know?
- Video games are being used as a platform for our young people to start addressing some of the biggest problems that face our world today such as clean water and oil shortage crises?
- Video games are training our military men and women in combat simulations making their chances for survival much stronger.
- Surgeons are using video game teaching tools to improve their use of joystick like controls in laparoscopic surgery with amazing results.
We know that gamers are achieving great things across our nation. We want to celebrate the face of gaming as we know it…our face, your face. Won’t you share your story with us?
To have your story highlighted in our upcoming GAMEFACE project, please fill out a GAMEFACE profile. We’ll show the world that it’s MORE THAN JUST A GAME: because if you can win with a controller you can win without, as it is with the game so it is with life.
